The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has used its break clause to cut petrol and diesel prices overnight.
As of Thursday, gas in the province is down 10.5 cents.
“This change is necessitated by significant shifts in market prices for gasoline and diesel,” NSUARB said in a news release Wednesday afternoon.
This comes after prices have fluctuated above $2 for two months, most recently around $2.03. Prices hit record highs in June, exceeding at least $2.15 per liter.

The last time the province invoked its gas stoppage clause was on June 21 to cut prices by six cents. Previously, it was used on May 17 to increase prices by 9.5 cents.
